August 27, 2017 Update from Denis – The Blue Cross!
(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2017 August 27, 2017 Dear Family of Mary TV, INCREDIBLE NEWS! You can now pray at the Blue Cross in Medjugorje at any time of day or night, from any place in the world! This link to the live camera shot, https://marytv.tv/?page_id=2363 , can be found at the very top of Mary TV’s web page. Your prayers and donations have made this special place of prayer in Medjugorje accessible to all of Our Lady’s children – 24/7 – just when she’s telling us: “Dear children! Today I am calling you to be people of prayer!”* I’m told this feat is nothing short of a miracle. For example, there is no clear “line of sight” to our building. The signal has to travel 1.3 miles and make its way around buildings and trees. AND IT’S WORKING! We didn’t really know what the camera would see. AND ITS PERFECT! This must give Our Lady joy…. In the “Prayer to the Mother of Goodness, Love and Mercy”, that she dictated to Jelena Vasilj on April 19, 1983, Our Lady included these words for us to pray to her: “Give us the grace to be merciful towards you!” Putting modern communications technologies at her disposal in Medjugorje so her children can stand by her side in prayer as she intercedes for the whole world is doing exactly that, being merciful to our Mother. “My Son promised me that evil will never win because you, the souls of the just, are here” A big THANK YOU to all our donors. This is a labor of love from us all. Some unexpected larger donations came in just before the youth festival – when Our Lady had told us: “Be ready. This time is a turning point!” Without them we would not have been able to move forward as we have done. Mary TV’s team consists of volunteers, some of whom receive small stipends. No one gets a full salary…. And donations right now aren’t really covering monthly expenses….but somehow Providence takes care. For example, Rosie hadn’t told me that she was short 1,800 Euros to pay this year’s rent for Mary TV’s Tea House in Medjugorje. I just found out that on the day the rent was due (May 1st, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker) someone walked into the Tea House, placed 1,800 Euros into Rosie’s hand, turned around and walked out! (Thank you, who ever you are!!)** Here is the link for how you can be part of this marvelous work for Our Lady: https://marytv.tv/?page_id=1468 Thank you and God bless you! Denis Nolan *“Dear children! Today I am calling you to be people of prayer. Pray until prayer becomes a joy for you and a meeting with the Most High. He will transform your hearts and you will become people of love and peace. Do not forget, little children, that Satan is strong and wants to draw you away from prayer. You, do not forget that prayer is the secret key of meeting with God. That is why I am with you to lead you. Do not give up on prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (August 25, 2017 message). ** I just can’ keep from sharing one more little story: Franjo and Rosie will be traveling to the US soon to greet their first grandchild (Yes, Josip and Christina are about to have a baby)! Franjo was late applying for a Visa….The family was a little nervous he might be cutting it too short. He was greeted last week when he walked into the US Embassy in Sarajevo, with: “Hi Franjo! How’s Rosie?” He was greeted warmly and given “red carpet” treatment! People at the Embassy are familiar with Mary TV and watch it regularly!
